Thanks, once again, to Deb at Focused on the Magic for hosting this week’s Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is especially close to my heart, as it recalls the very essence of Disney Magic… Walt Disney and his dream for family entertainment and Disneyland.  I snapped both of these shots during my last trip to Disneyland using the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone.  The first is of a diorama of Disneyland that sits in the lobby of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.  This display has been around Disneyland for a long time and I have always cherished the little cut-out of Walt from the classic picture of him walking through the castle into Fantasyland.  The second is also in the Opera House lobby and is said to be the bench that Walt was sitting on, as he watched his daughters enjoy an amusement park when he came up with his grand idea from a theme park where families could have fun together.
